The Ministry of Economy, Finance and Administration Reform has reviewed the property permit system, as part of the implementation of the projects included in the National Anti-Corruption Strategy, and these amendments come in conjunction with the preparations for the collective and legislative elections during the current year.

The Ministry has prepared a draft law in coordination with the Supreme Council of Accounts and the National Authority for Integrity and Prevention of Bribery in order to evaluate the currently adopted system in light of the constitutional reference and international experiences regarding the declaration of property.

Mohamed Benchâaboun, Minister of Economy, referred the draft law, in the presence of the General Secretariat of the government, while ministers obtained copies to express their observations.

The new draft specifies the conditions and modalities for the compulsory declaration of assets, and checks the content, the competent authorities for its management, and the categories that are obligated to declare assets.

These amendments come to fill the gaps known by the current system, after the work of the Supreme Council of Accounts faced difficulties in tracking the properties of elected senior officials.
